Pre-departure Testing Requirements for Air Travelers to the U.S. Lifted Effective June 12, 2022
The CDC order from December 2, 2021, requiring persons aged two and above to show a negative COVID-19 test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before boarding a flight to the United States, is rescinded, effective June 12, 2022, at 12:01AM ET. This means that starting at 12:01AM ET on June 12, 2022, air passengers will not need to get tested and show a negative COVID-19 test result or show documentation of recovery from COVID-19 prior to boarding a flight to the United States regardless of vaccination status or citizenship. Of note, CDC’s Order requiring proof of vaccination for non-citizen nonimmigrants to travel to the United States is still in effect. For more information see Requirement for Proof of COVID-19Vaccintation for Air Passengers on CDC’s website.
On September 1st, the requirements to enter Chile were updated, eliminating the Traveler’s Affidavit (C19) and vaccine standardization. Now, at the time of embarking to Chile, the person must comply with the following:
• Certificate of vaccination issued in the country where he/she was vaccinated. This certificate, along with the identity document, will be equivalent to the Mobility Pass.
• If the traveler does not have the vaccination schedule for their country, they must show a negative result in a PCR test within a maximum of 48 hours from departure. This result allows travel but does not give accessto the Mobility Pass.
• Diagnostic tests will be carried out randomly at the entry point to Chile. Confirmed cases shall be isolated according to the general health regulations.
For more COVID-19 travel restrictions please see the US Department of State website.
